A beautiful hike in the Garden Castle section of the Drakensberg Mountains. The hike goes up to a cave called Pillar Cave. Although we didn’t make it all the way to the cave (still struggling with my back…) the scenery was amazing. The smoke in the background is from controlled burning of the grasslands to create firebreaks, protecting the World Heritage Site of the Drakensberg.
“I listened, motionless and still;
and as I mounted up the hill,
the music in my heart I bore,
long after it was heard no more.”
– William Wordsworth
A little bay along the St. Blaize’s trail near Mossel Bay. Such beautiful scenery!
Another amazing hike on the Gardenroute is St. Blaise’s trail in Mossel Bay. A narrow path leads over the rocks, giving beautiful views over the ocean below.
The Waterfall trail at Storms River Mouth Rest Camp ends at a beautiful waterfall where the water drops over a cliff into a rock pool that connects to the sea. The water is clean and cool – and offers a great opportunity for a swim after the demanding hike!
